SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A dozen lawmakers from Utah will be traveling to China.

State officials say when government officials from Liaoning province visited Utah last year, state lawmakers signed a pact promising to visit China.

Senate Majority Leader Curt Bramble and House Majority Leader Dave Clark will head the 12-person Utah delegation on a week-long trip at the end of July.

State officials say the trip will cost a total of $20,000.

Utah will apparently pay for the airfare and hotel costs, while the province will pick up the cost of food and ground transportation.

Meanwhile, state leaders will allow a special subcommittee to meet up to six times this year. The group will study privatizing various Utah operations and look at areas where the state is now unfairly competing with private industry.
